  • Publication number: 20210146765
    Abstract: A support device of a vehicle battery pack of a vehicle. The vehicle battery pack includes a first battery accommodating portion disposed in a first space of the vehicle and a second battery accommodating portion, where the second battery accommodating portion is greater in a vehicle-widthwise dimension than the first battery accommodating portion, where the second battery accommodating portion is connected to the first battery accommodating portion, where the second battery accommodating portion is disposed in a second space, and where the second space is below the first space in a vehicle-heightwise dimension. A frame-side bracket is disposed at a vehicle-widthwise outer surface of a web of a side rail of a ladder frame of the vehicle and projects outward in a vehicle-widthwise direction and a connecting member elastically connects the second battery accommodating portion to the frame-side bracket to suspend the vehicle battery pack to the ladder frame.

  • Publication number: 20210126902
    Abstract: A method and computer readable software for providing randomized Security Parameter Index (SPI) for distributed Internet Protocol security (IPsec) are disclosed. In one embodiment a method includes designating each IPsec node with a unique node identifier, the IPsec node; performing a hash function on a random SPI to provide a randomized SPI; and assigning the randomized SPI to an IPsec tunnel associated with an IPsec node.

  • Publication number: 20210107344
    Abstract: A vehicle battery housing which enables an electric vehicle to have an increased battery on-board capacity. The vehicle battery housing is mounted on a vehicle having a ladder frame and includes a first battery accommodating portion arranged in a first space between two side rails constituting the ladder frame and a second battery accommodating portion greater in vehicle-widthwise dimension than the first battery accommodating portion and connected to the first battery accommodating portion to be located in a second space vehicle-heightwise below the first space.

  • Publication number: 20200280438
    Abstract: Methods, systems and computer readable media are disclosed for providing a quantum cipher based on phase inversion, A shared key is established between a first party and a second party. A Hadamard transformation is applied to a message intended for a second party from the first party to produce an equal superposition state. A key phase inversion is applied to the output of the Hadamard transformation. A multiple phase inversion transformation is applied to the output of the key phase inversion to produce an encrypted quantum state with a uniform probability and relative phase distributions. The result is sent to the second party.
